ESPN’s SEC Blog is wrapping up each member’s spring football drills, with Kentucky’s wrap being posted this morning.
In the view of blogger Edward Aschoff, Kentucky’s No. 1 fall question is its offensive line.
1. Offensive line: Three starters up front had to be replaced this spring and the Wildcats ended practice knowing that the offensive line is still a work in progress. There is leadership and experience in Larry Warford and Matt Smith, but after that there’s a lot of inexperience. Behind Warford and Smith, rising sophomore Darrian Miller and junior-to-be Kevin Mitchell combined for three starts last year. There were bright spots here and there this spring, but the inexperience up front is still a concern for coaches heading into the offseason.
I would agree with that to some degree, but have enough confidence in line coach Mike Summers, and the ability of Larry Warford, to think the line will be in decent shape come the opener against Louisville. The concern here is still playmakers. Can DeMarco Robinson, Josh Clemons, Darryl Collins, etc., give the offense the home run ability it lacked last year?
